These buses are called BEST or BEST bus. BEST bus serves the entire Mumbai City. It has operations outside city limits into neighboring Navi Mumbai, Thane and Mira-Bhayandar. In addition to buses, it operates a ferry service in the northern reaches of the city.The BEST operates bus rapid transit service — Mumbai BRTS. Mumbai BRTS is a massive bus rapid transit system taken up by the MCGM, B.E.S.T. Undertaking, and Government of Maharashtra. The Mumbai BRTS began operation in 2008.The present BEST undertaking was started as an electric supply company which then branched out to provide bus and tram services. In 1964, electric trams were terminated due to high operational costs and poor public support.On 18 April 1947, the general manager of the B.E.S.T. Company offered to sell the B.E.S.T. Company along with its bus transport section to the Corporation but required an amount equal to twenty per cent of the value of the bus transport section be paid to the Company as goodwill. But this demand was rejected in view of the Government’s policy of nationalising transport. However, the payment of goodwill was accepted in principle. The Corporation acquired the B.E.S.T. Company total assets for 6,35,00,000.On 7 August 1947, the Municipal Corporation took over the B.E.S.&T. Company Ltd and it was municipalised to form the Bombay Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking which was again renamed to Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking (B.E.S.&T Undertaking) in 1995.[10] BEST celebrates 7 August annually as "BEST Day".
